Mycological lab in the center provides microscopic examination and cultivation of patients suffering from mycotic infections due to dermatophytes, yeasts, and molds.

The commonest dermatophytes isolated in Kuwait are: M. canis and T. rubrum. The commonest yeast is C. albicans. From the clinical point of view, T. capitis in children and T. cruris in adults are the most common dermatophytes encountered. Candidal paronychium and onychium prevail among candidal infections.
